This hostel is situated in a relatively peaceful neighbourhood, around a 10 minute walk from Sauchiehall Street. Due to the location, there are plenty of parking spaces available. We stayed in a room of two – with the room as expected, basic. The hotel is clean although it could do with a makeover. The views from our window were outstanding....

This hostel is one of the prettiest I've ever been to. Beds are comfortable and it's easy key card access throughout the building. Each time I've stayed I've been out late and have had no trouble with the place. The staff are friendly as well. Only draw back it that it's quite out of the way. You could walk from...

Great location, amazing building and super friendly staff. Big kitchen and all spotlessly clean. Run by folk who know what people want because they travel themselves. Looking forward to visiting again soon. Highly recommended.

I arrived back at the hostel at 1:00am. There is no public transportation close to the hostel so I had to walk back which is far, up a hill and out of the way. Plus it was freezing outside. The desk was closed with the gate down and the key didn't work to open the inside door because (according to...

I have reported this as inappropriate, it refers to a member of our team by name and is completely untrue. Tripadvisor please remove this, our team member has asked this to be done so. I have tried to report it using inappropiate but it does not allow me to do so. Thanks Lorna Padden

I wish I would have done a little more research into the location of this hostel before booking, but that is my fault, not the hostels. It takes about 20-30 minutes to get from the city center to the hostel via bus/subway and then a walk up the hill. The facilities were fine. The staff were nice and friendly. If...

Hello, Thanks for your review, much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your breakfast out, but we think our own cooked offering at £6:50 which includes a full Scottish breakfast with black pudding and haggis, cereal, orange juice and unlimited tea and coffee is pretty good also. Thank Lorna Padden

Great rooms, decent price, easy to get to all night life areas. Fantastic if you're visiting the university as a prospective student. Gives you a feel for the campus and helps you to see the diversity Glasgow has to offer. The staff are lovely, and though you mainly share dorms everyone is pretty friendly. Not heard a bad experience.

After arriving at Glasgow Central station, I ended up walking to the Hostel because I couldn't find the appropriate bus to take me up the hill.

we booked a twin ensuite, on arrival recetionest was most helpful. the room had its own tea making service which was most appreciated, not having to go to the kitchen when needing a cuppa. ensuite was wonderful and larg, even provided towels, which is not the norm from other yhas. Best value for what we paid for.
